Team Tongie, a Tonganoxie organization that raises funds to help students in the school district who are battling serious illness, is hosting a community block party Sunday.
A 5K walk/run, games, musical entertainment and a movie night are planned at Tonganoxie High School, 404 E. U.S. Highway 24-40.
Festivities will start at 3:30 p.m. with the walk/run beginning and ending at the THS east campus.
Inflatable games, face painting and balloons will be available for youths from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. School bands, cheer and dance teams will perform, as will Annie’s Country Jubilee entertainers. The performances will take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. At 7 p.m., a movie will be shown outside THS and a children’s movie will be shown inside the school.
To date, Team Tongie has given more than $20,000 to about 20 district families with financial burdens due to illnesses.
